Disk quota for filesystems created over iSCSI SAN devices does not get enabled at the time of booting

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After reboot quotas were turned on successfully only for the filesystem on lvm volume /dev/mapper/vg1-lv1 which is created on local disks. The disk quotas were not turned on for other lvm volume /dev/mapper/vg2-lv2 which was created over iSCSI SAN devices. Is this expected behavior?

    [root@localhost ~]# quotaon -ap
    group quota on /export2 (/dev/mapper/vg2-lv2) is off
    user quota on /export2 (/dev/mapper/vg2-lv2) is off
    group quota on /export1 (/dev/mapper/vg1-lv1) is off
    user quota on /export1 (/dev/mapper/vg1-lv1) is on
